Small loose plastic heatshrink loose in chassis

I was taking a look inside because I thought my touchpad cable might be loose, but I found this small plastic (what appears to be) piece of heatshrink floating around in an empty ram slot. I can’t find where it’s supposed to go and and I don’t see any wires shorting or anything, but I don’t like extra pieces.

Here’s a pic of the tube in question (with a screwdriver for scale)

On a separate note, are there canonical high-detail pictures of the inside of the case just for part/repair reference? The pictures from the repair guides aren’t super helpful, I’d like one “map” as it were.

That’s the wifi antenna connector end cap.

Jeah just an antenna cap as @A_A said.

@A_A @Ian_Thomas So was it just part of the packaging for the antenna connector and I don’t need it? I suspect as much but I have a strong aversion to throwing away tiny parts that I don’t recognize

Use it as a screwdriver condom :stuck_out_tongue:
